A quick way to make balls is to oil a cup(measuring cup works well) ans stuff coated popcorn in. First time making popcorn balls, will definitly make again. Thumb Up Helpful (546)Rating: 5 stars I have never eaten nor less made popcorn balls, ever!! This is the first time I made popcorn balls and it took me a little while to realize that you have to press REALLY hard on the balls to make them stick together. What kid doesn't like to get popcorn balls?
